Class Description:
Mapping the World with Art is a blend of history, geography, and art. Goals for this class include: Understanding the countries of the world, how they sit in relation to each other, and their major geographic features. In class we will study regions of the world and improve our cartography skills. Students will draw maps of each region, starting with Mesopotamia and ending the year with Antarctica. Class content is based on the DVD program ‘Mapping the World with Art’ by Ellen McHenry.
There is minimal homework, but students wishing to truly memorize regions and their geographic features will need to review and practice at home. The textbook contains optional activities students can complete at home if additional learning is desired for your family.

Cost for the textbook is $20 plus $10 supply fee = $30
